NotePods are audio and text summaries, written specifically for students by university professors, of books and plays by Shakespeare, Dickens, Austen, and many other required authors. Unlike other study aids that are long on analysis and short on storyline, NotePods are detailed summaries of the characters and events that happen in the books. For example, the NotePods version of Pride and Prejudice (which is about 230 pages in the original text) is 90 minutes in length, which means that students can study while riding a bike, walking to class, sitting in the cafeteria, and so on. NotePods can be downloaded for USD$1.99.
As for the free iPod case, Jack Bernstein, President of InterLingua Educational Publishing says, “There’s nothing to buy and there are no hidden catches. Our only goal is to introduce students to our new line of NotePods, and the iPod case giveaway is intended to bring people to our www.NotePods.com website so they can see the titles weâ€™re offering and download a free sample.” The clear, hard plastic protective cases are designed for the current generation of video iPods and only full-time students with United States postal addresses are eligible to receive them.
Students visiting the website can also register for the NotePods School Rep program. There are a limited number of reps at every school and they receive a generous percentage of sales made via their MySpace, Facebook, or other webpage. A registration button is included at the bottom of every webpage.
